Yes, but with RECS you do 2 scans(in and out) every time you do take a break. So if you split your break time up and take 2 or 3 breaks, that’s 4 or 6 extra “scans” per day. 🙂

I always stop to put something in my stomach… your body deserves that!!! Nothing is worth ruining your health for…eating something keeps your metabolism and check. Getting home 10 minutes earlier is not going to make a difference
